3. Leskanic imo would be a serious upgrade over Reith and or Norton. He seemed to be a reliable pitcher for the Brew Crew. I think Hume could work out the kinks.
4. I AM VERY HAPPY TO SEE THE REDS FINALLY MAKE A MOVE THAT AT LEAST SYMBOLIZES A MOVE TO HELP THESE VETS WIN. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS MOVE. THESE GUYS NEED TO FEEL LIKE MNGMT IS GOING TO HELP THEM.
I agree with everything you said BRS.
I have been a vocal critic of the front office, but at least they see the bullpen problem and are trying to fix it. They said they had money to spend if they were competitive, and they at least made one move.
But, as much as I like this move, they still need at least one more reliever and a starter, so hopefully this is the first move of a trifecta
